Prayers For Peace - Wah Jhi Le Yihm - I Carry You With Me


Ulali Project - Wah Jhi Le Yihm



It's a day full of sorrow in Canada. In light of the violent attack on the mosque in Quebec City. It is difficult to know what to do in such tragic times. My prayer is that we will support those in mourning, who are suffering, that we will all be carrying them in our prayers and in whatever way we can, showing that we are standing with them, in solidarity, carrying them with us.

A Hopi Prayer for Peace
Contributed by: Billie Campbell

Great Spirit and all unseen, this day we pray and ask you for guidance, 
humbly we ask you to help us and fellow men to have recourse to peaceful ways 
of life, because of uncontrolled deceitfulness by humankind.

Help us all to love, not hate one another. We ask You to be seen in an image 
of Love and Peace. Let us be seen in beauty, the colors of the rainbows. We 
respect our Mother, the planet & our corn fields, with our loving care, from 
Her breast we receive our nourishment.
...

Let us not listen to the voices of the two-hearted, the destroyers of mind, 
the haters of self-made leaders, whose lusts for power and wealth will lead 
us into confusion and darkness. Seek visions always of world beauty, not 
violence not battlefields.

It is our duty to pray always for harmony between man and earth, so that the 
earth will bloom once more. Let us show our emblem of love and goodwill for 
all life and land.

Pray for the House of Glass, (United Nations) Pray for within it are minds 
clear and pure as ice and mountain streams. Pray for the great leaders of 
nations in the House of Mica who in their own quiet ways help the earth in 
balance.

We pray the Great Sprit that one day our Mother Earth will be purified into a 
healthy peaceful one. Let us Sing for strength of wisdom with all nations for 
the good of all people.

Our hope is not yet lost, purification must be to restore the health of our 
Mother Earth for lasting peace and happiness, Techqua Ikachi -- for Land and 
Life!

"Wah Jhi Le Yihm"
 
 "this is a song for healing and giving back to the water and letting the
 water wash and clean and the spirit rise those are some of the words in
 the song. Wah Jhi Le Yihm… means I carry you with me… So…it means let 
the water carry you… It’s an ancestral song for the dead and the water 
as the sacred source…"
